Believe it or not, the replacement cost for an 86 900 with less than 100K with all the recent mechanical work is more like $5 - 6K according to Carter, and Hazelett Saab (+/- $500) They're hard to come by, and go quickly. Anyway, the damage turns out to be more like $4500+ so repair appears to be out of the question. Anyone want to buy the " salvage "? -> excellent engine and 5sp tran, w/96K heated seats that work good glass 4 P20575R15's with 75% tread left basically everything except bumper, grille, hood LF quarter panel, and radiator.
